“First they came for LGBT people, and I did not speak out – because I was not an LGBT person. Then they came for the unions, and I did not speak out – because I was not a union member. Then they came for the undocumented and uninsured workers, and I did not speak out [...]

The Eight Annual Blatino Oasis


As you head east on I-10 alongside the crowded blast of eighteen-wheelers, homebound vacationers and an eclectic mix of locals, County workers and drifters transporting themselves in everything from RVs to motorcycles to oddly militaristic-looking County vehicles in nuclear green and white, you pass the San Jacinto mountains to the west before hitting the off-ramp [...]
